Re: refuah shlema, prayer for the cholim (sick), prayer for recovery, misheberach.
What is your purpose for saying a 'mishebeirach' (me-sheh-bay-rahk) prayer to bring a speedy recovery (a refuah shlema) for the sick (the cholim)? What is the "how" in your prayer for the ill person—how can it manifest? What is an acceptable path to this manifestation? Have you ever thought of your prayer so specifically? Are you praying for a miracle cure? A New treatment for cancer? Are you praying for a spontaneous and immediate healing for another type of chronic disease? Are you praying for a rebuilding and return of health by divine intervention? Are you praying for hope? Are you praying for anything possible that will help with healing?
Mi (Me), in Hebrew means: He who..., or who. Berach is a form of the word, "blessing," i.e., blesses. He who blesses...
I think it is a good idea to clarify the posibilities for "how" of your prayers. Then, you can answer the following question: Are you OK with an answer to your prayer that comes though human form? In other words, are you OK if your prayers for speedy recovery were to be answered through simply meeting the right person who could help you more than you ever dreamed? Must the answer to your misheberach prayer have to be by direct intervention from G-d, or can it be through a messenger of some kind? Can your prayer be answered indirectly? Is it possible that your prayer includes being led to your answer; to your healer, or to a key decision?
G-d has given us all the natural herbs, foods and resources of the earth. It is up to mankind to uncover their healing properties, and for doctors like me to figure out how to use them for healing.
Does prayer do the curing, or can prayer bring the healing? If your prayer outcome is not so strict as to exclude anything but direct divine intervention, how can you know if you are being tested, conned, or led to the truth when something comes your way (or the way of the person for whom you are praying)? Use your intuition. Try allowing yourself to not let the critically programmed portion of your brain get in your way. Allow the possibility of what has presented itself to sink in, before you might reflexively push it away. Sometimes it is impossible to "know" if something will be right or not. Does the unconventional methodology that presents itself to you make any logical sense? What do your feelings and insights tell you about this possibility? Will it cause any harm to follow this path, or to act on this "new possibility" that has presented itself?
There's an old Hippocratic saying: "First, do no harm." Use that as a guide. Also, recall and recognize that the Lord works in mysterious ways, often and most likely through the established laws of the universe. However, remember that the more we think we already know, the less the unknown has a chance to reveal itself, and inadvertently, the less you may allow divine intervention to come to fruition, in whatever form it may take.
Have you lost hope? Ask yourself why you are so convinced that there is nothing else that can be done. You may find that you have placed the opinions of doctors on par with godly revelations, but the language of the gods of "medical science" is not the final judgment. Those priestly looking people in the long white coats are just human men and women, and are trained not to tell you words such as "we don't know," or "medicine doesn't have the answer for that," or "it's in G-d's hands now." Instead they use such phrases as, "there's nothing more that can be done," and "there is no known cure." After hearing this kind of language over and over it is understandable how you would come to believe their myopic hopeless opinions. But, are all the wonders of the human body fully revealed by conventional, industrialized, medical practice? I think you know, deep down, that they are not.
If the current medical model of disease management, can only lead us astray for the answers we really need to our prayers, then we must go outside of the medical language that says "the cause is unknown," to a language of human healing potential.
If you are OK with what we have covered so far, let's go to the last concept I would like to share with you on this issue. Somehow, you were led to read the words on this page about getting an answer to your misheberach prayer; a prayer that asks for speedy recovery (refuah shlema), or even a miracle cure. I believe that there is a reason for you having found this page. It was a one in a million chance that you found this page and are reading these words. Does G-d ultimately work through the physical world, conserving the physical laws of the universe, to bring about the answers to a prayer for healing? Can the wonders of the human body be revealed by something outside of chemical medicine and high technology diagnostics? e.g. by a healer in Los Angeles.
What if there were an established method that could be used clinically to reveal great insights for achieving healing, yet, since it was not a scalable business model, there were no financial incentives for supportive research, and consequently the research were never funded, or published? What if one of the tenets of this novel method were that the body's healing potential is still there no matter how sick a person may be, but the healing potential just has to be unblocked? What if you have been led somehow, to a person who can use these concepts in support of healing? Would you reflexively push away the possibility of healing, or would you allow it in, to help the person in need? I hope you are able to allow yourself some consideration of this kind of method to help the person in need.
Our healing method is for uncovering the questions we often have in our prayers for healing (for revealing how to get better). When the current medical model of disease management can only lead us astray for the answers to healing that we really need, we must go outside of the medical language that says "the cause is unknown," to a language of human healing potential. Your next step is to let that healing language in. It's not about getting stuck on the diagnostic label. Then, when the focus is on the healing potential, you can have a new, complementary alternative plan of action; one that you never knew existed before your prayers for healing were answered. New healing possibilities will open for you. Would that be an acceptable answer to your prayers for the ill?
Answers to prayers for a return to health can come from anywhere. Let them in. My gift to a person who is on a misheberach list or refuah shlema list (a "Refuah List") or a prayer list (Tehillim list) for a return to health in Los Angeles, or Beverly Hills, is my commitment in helping the needy get started on a new path of healing.
The prayers have brought you here. Being, or remaining a victim is no longer allowed. That was the past. Future costs are minimal. It doesn't cost a lot to unblock one's healing potential, yet it is some of the most important money we will ever spend; much more important than a house, or a car.
The healing method we use is non-destructive, unlike conventional approaches. It is integrative, comfortable, non-invasive, and doesn't require stress, or a lot of time in our office. We'll discuss more details at our free phone consultation. Sound OK? Just allow yourself to contact, or call me today to make an appointment.
